Maps OpenCPN using SAS Planet

Good morning
Someone knows how to make nautical maps for OpenCPN using SAS Planet?
SAS Planet is a wanderfull program that allows to download maps NAVIONICS and save them in many format.
For instance I made maps for OruxMaps, but I din not understand how to make maps for OpenCPN.
Tank you

I wrote a python script that generates kap files for given lat/lon areas from any of the sas planet sources.

Re: Maps OpenCPN using SAS Planet

Hi
First of all sorry because I am not so able.
I can create a map ECW with stitch page of SAS Planet.
I can then view the map in Global mapper.
But when I try to convert it in BSB with batch converter I obtain a file that opened in OpenCPN looks corrupted.
Can you help me?
A tutorial would be apreciated
